MY COACHING STORY
B.A (Psychology) B.Ed, M.Ed, This Naked Mind Certified Coach
I began changing my own relationship with alcohol when I decided to take a break from drinking in July 2018. At the time, I was living in Qatar, exploring the world and enjoying my ex-pat lifestyle. On paper, my life was envious. I was making great money, travelling the world and experiencing things so far beyond my small-town upbringing. But on the inside something wasn't quite right. I’d wake up in the middle of the night on the couch because I’d fallen asleep in the middle of my last glass of wine. In the morning, I was dragging myself out of bed and brushing my teeth made me want to gag. I had to wash the wine stains off my lips more mornings than not. My anxiety was out of control and hangovers were no longer as manageable as when I was in my early 20s. Something needed to change, and although I didn't want to admit it, alcohol was increasingly the most obvious answer.
I started googling “am I an alcoholic?” and “is a bottle of wine a day too much?” and that's when I came across some blog posts of people who had just taken a break from drinking. It had never crossed my mind that someone could just take a few months or a year off drinking and then drink again if they wanted to. So I decided to try it. I took a break. It lasted around six months before I decided to try the moderation route. A year later, longing for the freedom and lightness I had found when I was alcohol-free, I dumped alcohol for good. I have been happily alcohol-free since January 2020, and the best part is that now I get to help others find freedom and get their sparkle back.
As a This Naked Mind Certified Coach, I have the experience, tools and compassion to help your reach your goals with alcohol. I'm passionate about working with women who are sober or sober-curious and who want to shift their life from surviving to thriving.
